Now in our 17th year in 2019, it was in 2012 we celebrated our 10th year of Honeyeaters! & wow what a fabulous achievement. Although now a few years on, our community is in many respects only just beginning. It took the first 5 years to gain local Council approval to start creating our community. From there the process began of finding members and they then in turn,over the next few years began developing their plots of land into exciting new homes & gardens, whilst learning to manage the property as a whole.
We are still very much a work in progress that has taken us all on an incredible adventure, some aspects have taken much longer journey than any of us imagined, but all of it has been totally worthwhile. From being the small farm, run by one family, that we purchased to being a community with completed homes for some families, some still in the building stages, and some still to start, we now have a wonderful mix of people and interests, who are getting to grips with community living,farming & growing food. We now run our own community cattle and some members have and share chooks, goats and sheep.
We have learned much and are still learning about living together in community, changing our attitudes, shedding preconceptions, & coming to share our experiences, so we look forward to welcoming friends and family to our special place in the years to come.
